Mitch McGary measured in at the Nike Skills Academy in New Jersey yesterday at 6-foot-10 (with shoes) and 266 pounds (without shoes). McGary also measured with a 6-foot-11.5 wing span. Much was made of Mitch McGary’s weight during his breakout NCAA tournament (he lost 20 pounds during the season) and I think it’s safe to say that 266 pounds isn’t quite his ideal playing weight.

Kameron Chatman checked in at 6-foot-6.5 inches tall, 197 pounds with a 6-foot-9.5 inch wing span. 2015 prospects Elijah Thomas (6-foot-8, 270lbs, 7-foot-1 wing span) and Isaiah Briscoe (6-foot-3.5, 214 pounds, 6-foot-8.5 wing span) also measured in. Glenn Robinson III Instagrammed workout measurements which report his weight increased from 214 pounds to 223 pounds this spring while reducing his body fat. His no-step reach increased three inches from 11’2″ to 11’5″. That measure would rank 30th among draft eligible prospects this y...

Trey Burke, Michigan and the pick-and-roll
